    They're showing SDCC colors. Misleading.

    WHY would they do 2 Primes instead of making a nice even case with Shockwave instead??? Ugh.

    I'm only surprised that they actually considered placing Wave 1 deluxes. Hasbro really needs to learn that people chose to overstock Wave 1.

    Nice to know that the second wave will have all the characters needed to make Bruticus. But, why are they using the images of the SDCC exclusive versions? That's a bit misleading to anyone that hasn't been paying attention since the announcement at Botcon.

    Oh goody, two Optimuses. I thought this case ratio was supposed to be something to brag about?

    On the contrast, the Decepticon to Autobot ratios are 7:9, much better than the RID line.

    All Bruticus members in one wave? Good move Hasbro (and for once, I mean that).

    If they had put Shockwave instead of a second Prime, this would be a GREAT case to buy... Ugh.

    I got a feeling Shockwave is going to be a PITA to find soon after release and hes going to stay that way.

    The 5 decepticons that make up wave 2 might have something to do with it.

    I wouldn't worry about it, Shockwave's 2 to a case in the first wave.

    Wait, there's only ONE of each Combaticon per case?

    Hmm, I'm not entirely sure it that's good or bad...

    This, and that Optimus Prime's a popular character.

    And finally, Blast-Off shares quite a bit of resemblance to Shockwave in his toy colors, with the similarly styled chest and the purple deco. Makes sense to me they'd want to phase out Shockwave to ease confusion.

    well thats good that they won't be spread out amongst other waves, like Energon did. also good you can get them individually since I want a second Swindle.

    Eh, it keeps the playing field level. They'll all be as desirable as one another, no single shortpacked combiner member. They couldn't do two of each as the cases aren't that big, so I think this is better rather than mixed quantities of a group whose selling point is collecting them all.
